Quoted from AlexSMendes:
I'm just saying that as the LED version fits exactly like the original dmd, you don't need to go through all that mounting hassle, or did I miss something here?
It's not a hassle. Instead of mounting it in one set of holes, you use another set. The installation is exactly the same. If you're buying an LED aftermarket solution, sure you can do that, but you're spending money you don't have to spend.
Edit: My bad....didn't realize you were referring to the newer LED version of ColorDMD. That will work fine. No hacks or alternative mounting needed. But if you have the LCD version, it can still work too.
Quoted from floyd1977:
Wow, that must be new advice. That sounds way easier than what I did, using instructions that are still on colordmd.com!
Oh yeah it is. I remember when that was the only way to do it. I actually got the new instructions from Herg himself when I emailed him to ask if there was any other way to do it other than that insane soldering hack or just living with the dull screen-lit version. He replied in a kind of "you know what?" manner that sounded like he just realized the original parts can work if you just mount it differently. Send him an email...I tried to find the convo we had on this but came up short.
